Yeah, Dylan definitely would've done something like that. Bob's never been the overly-serious type.

My daughter was in third grade this past school year. They do a little thing where they get assigned a kindergartener to be their "book buddy". The third graders read to them and help them with reading, etc. Anyway, the little boy that my daughter was assigned to is obsessed with the Marianas Trench. He knows like everything about it. My daughter was very amused by this. Rightfully so. It's hilarious to think about a little six-year-old obsessed with the Marianas Trench. So, this song is great. Looking forward to this album.

Ha! My wife and I were in Nashville a couple years ago. We were walking by a bar with a band playing. We couldn't hear the music, but she suggested we go in. I said no based entirely on the fact that the singer of the band was wearing a backwards cap. Just judging by that, I knew they'd suck.

When I worked in news, I got assigned to shoot an interview with Fieri. The reporter with me didn't know who he was. I was telling her what a clown he was, blah blah blah. Then we met him, and he was SOOOO nice! I interviewed thousands of people over my career and I feel like I can tell when someone isn't being genuinely nice to me. Fieri was being genuinely nice. I felt like such an asshole for talking shit about him. He even made me a burger. Cooked it right there in front of me and handed it to me himself. It was really good.

Haven't listened to all of them, but if you stopped at Desire, you're missing a lot of good stuff. Empire Burlesque, Street Legal and Infidels are underrated. Oh Mercy is great. Of course Time Out of Mind is amazing and so are pretty much all of his non-covers albums after that.

I don't think he was asked to write anything. I think he was feeling uncomfortable about the band's name and decided to open a dialog about it. That's probably why he didn't just go ahead and change it. He wrote that to put the idea out there and gauge what people feel about it.

Jeez, Miles. This article took a great turn near the end there with the section about bands being remembered, etc. That was really beautiful. It reminds me a lot of Mark Richardson's writing. I hope you take that as a compliment. I love his fascination with memory. It pops up in so much of his writing.

I saw someone point out that we expect retail workers to keep calm and quiet while someone yells in their face about a return or some shit, but people are fine with a cop (who should have been trained extensively to stay calm under pressure) beating the shit out of someone for saying mean things to them.

That, and his playing is very physical (for lack of a better term). I'd have to think it would be a necessity for your body to be pretty strong to do what he does.

Right. I think if she'd been like, "Fuck you. I'll write/sing about whatever I want!", it would have been fine. But instead, she had to be all, "What about her?!!? And her?!?! And HER!?!?!"

He also released the album a week early at indie record stores. Just going anecdotally by the stores I shop at or follow on Instagram, it seemed to give them a nice boost. Isbell’s record seemed to sell out everywhere. And I’m sure there were quite a few people who bought it that threw in a few more releases to their order. I just thought that was a simple, but very helpful thing to do.

I only recently realized what the name Was (Not Was), uh...was...referring to. Isn't it in Spinal Tap where they say, "There's a fine line between stupid and clever"? That band name definitely falls on the "clever" side for me. Love it.
